05 Oct Black Panther Original Motion Picture Soundtrack gets new 3xLP release
The Academy Award winning score to the 2018 film Black Panther will be issued on vinyl in October. It is the first time the complete album will be available on vinyl.
Making The Black Panther Soundtrack
To begin with, Ludwig Göransson composed the score for Black Panther. It is an exceptional soundtrack. Unlike any other piece of music composed for a superhero film. Göransson committed to authenticity. It combines traditional African instruments together with vocal performances from legendary performers such as Baaba Maal, with a Hollywood symphony. This fusion brought a one-of-a-kind sonic experience to the audience.
To explain the soundtrack Göransson has said: “The most difficult part is that as soon as you put production and orchestra on top of African music, it doesn’t sound African anymore. So the challenge was incorporating these things and making them still feel African.”
“It was important to me to make music that fit in culturally with each scene. For example, if there’s a big fight. There are traditional African rhythms created 1,000 years ago for these specific kinds of moments. Finding ways to use these rhythms that have always soundtracked those moments for scenes in the film can make them really special.”
